France’s oldest doctor still treating patients at 98


  • After almost seven decades, Dr. Christian Chenay still wants to treat patients in the ‘forgotten’ suburbs of Paris.
  • At 98, Dr. Chenay is France’s oldest practicing doctor and he does not see himself stopping anytime soon, saying: “If you sit and watch TV all day you switch off pretty quickly.”
  • The good doctor, who has no health problems of his own and doesn’t even wear glasses during his consultations, sees patients on Mondays and Wednesdays and cares for members of a religious retirement home once a week.
